To: Sir Robin Wales Newham Council

Social Housing in Stratford East London

Invest in the carpenters estate to improve the lives of the community who live there through upgrading the tower blocks and surrounding homes and also publicly acknowledge the home of one of the UK's most respected designers Alexander Mc Queen

Why is this important?

By upgrading the mostly unused tower blocks this would increase the social and key worker housing stock.

The Carpenters Estate has a Tower Block and houses left empty for year in an area with no key workers homes or social housing. The Tower Block was considered unsafe but was used by the BBC during the Olympics and is still empty now.

Newham Council's motto is " live work stay" but the reality is quite different

We need homes for the people of newham not just empty tower blocks sold to overseas investors.
